Bandits on Sunday night returned to Anguwar Tudun Fulani in Yangoji village, Kwali Area Council of the FCT, and abducted three women.

 This comes barely two months after bandits invaded the area and abducted the wife and three children of the herders’ chief.

 The three abducted women were named as Hauwa Musa, Zainab Musa and Sa’adatu Adamu.

The Mai-Anguwa of Tudun Fulani, Alhaji Aliyu Abubakar, confirmed the latest abduction when our reporter visited the area on Monday morning.

 He said the bandits came around 11pm and started shooting before moving out the three women.

 Abubakar, who led our reporter to the houses from where the three women were abducted, said the bandits shattered the windows and front door of one of the houses and whisked away two of the women.

 “After that, they moved to the next house and abducted another woman before leaving the community,” he said.

City & Crime learnt that the husbands of the abducted women had travelled out of the community when the incident happened.

 The mai-anguwa, who was visibly disturbed, said the latest attack was the third in the area since January this year, adding that some of his kinsmen have been relocating from the community. 

“I have summoned several meetings to see how we can engage the services of vigilantes, but my people are not cooperating,” he further said.

 The spokeswoman of the FCT Police Command, DSP Adeh Josephine, did not pick calls or reply to text message sent to her over the latest kidnap incident.
